Wearing Back and White Outfits this Summer

I wrote about wearing color in the post: A Summer of Color, and today I want to talk about back and white. This very popular summer trend is taking over the racks of our favorite retailers. This is my first outfit post wearing entirely black and white and personally I can’t wait to wear this trend more and more. Since it’s a simplistic trend you might run into trouble by over thinking it. This over thinking of looks is true of all white trend too but I’ll cover that in another post.

When putting together your black and white summer look pick some key pieces you want to focus on. For example, I wanted the main focus of this look to be on the very cute black sandals and the pretty laser cut dress. This dress is strapless and though I don’t particularly love strapless dresses or shirts I make them work for me by always wearing a cover-up, a jacket or vest of some sort. So for this outfit my cover-up is a white cropped vest and it works perfectly because it’s short enough that it doesn’t take away from the dress.

Are you planning on wearing black and white this summer?

Stay Stylish,

    I need to invest in a white vest! I’m sure I would wear it all the time during the summer.

      Yes I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing this again. Also it doesn’t have to be that expensive.

    I’ve been really enjoying black, white, and one bright color mixed in for this summer. Cute dress–I like the cutout detail.

      I’m trying to wear this trend now, I’m so into the color that I’m not sure how many more outfits I will wear like these.

    Black and white seems to be it this summer, doesn’t it? Either all black or white too. Kind of like the trend, but I do need to find interesting pieces to add to my wardrobe…

      I find this a very interesting trend for summer because it’s usually very bright and fun so we’ll see how this dark and white goes. I’m looking forward to wearing all white outfits, not sure about all black.
